stick.Daniel Sedin then had another

  • DETROIT - By the time Henrik Zetterberg scored his third goal of the third period, a terrible start by the Detroit Red Wings was all but forgotten. Swell Bottles Uk .Zetterbergs hat trick capped an impressive Detroit comeback, lifting the Red Wings to a 6-4 victory over Buffalo on Sunday night in a game the Sabres led 3-0 after one period. It was Buffalos 11th consecutive loss.We knew we had to play better to turn it around, Zetterberg said. We knew that if we could get one, we were gonna get a few more. Also, if we started playing the way we should play, we would have a good chance of winning the game.It was the sixth career hat trick for the Detroit captain, and it helped goalie Tom McCollum earn his first career victory. McCollum came on during the first period to replace Petr Mrazek, who allowed three goals on seven shots.Buffalo barely put any pressure on the Red Wings after that early lead. McCollum, whose only other NHL appearance came in 2011, was credited with only seven saves in over 45 minutes of action.There are going to be certain nights when world-class athletes are going to out-skill us and we believe thats what happened tonight, Buffalo coach Ted Nolan said.Tyler Ennis scored twice for the Sabres, including a goal in the third that made it 5-4, but Zetterberg answered with his third goal of the period.All 11 of Buffalos defeats during this skid have been in regulation. The last time a team lost 11 in a row, all in regulation, was when Pittsburgh dropped 13 straight from Jan. 13-Feb. 12, 2004, according to STATS.Drew Stafford opened the scoring for Buffalo early in the first, and Ennis made it 2-0 when his shot from a severe angle to the right of the net slipped past Mrazek, who was starting in place of the injured Jimmy Howard.Mrazek was pulled after Chris Stewarts goal with 6:23 left in the period, and it was still 3-0 after one.Obviously, we were embarrassed. That was as bad as weve been, Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. Youve got to give the guys a lot of credit. This is two huge points for us. It was one that could have slipped away, but we didnt let that happen.Buffalo wasnt credited with a shot on goal in the second until the period was more than half over. By then, Gustav Nyquist, Drew Miller and Tomas Tatar had scored for Detroit to tie the game.Seven shots after the first period just shows were not spending much time in the offensive zone. Its going to wear on you and they took advantage of it, Buffalos Tyler Myers said. We knew they were going to come out strong in the second after the first period we had. We didnt answer the bell.Zetterberg went to work early in the third, knocking in a rebound while the Red Wings had an extra skater on the ice during a delayed penalty on Buffalo. He added a power-play goal to make it 5-3, and after Ennis scored for the Sabres, Zetterberg completed his hat trick, beating Buffalo goalie Jhonas Enroth from near the right faceoff dot with 8:01 remaining.It was his first hat trick since Feb. 1, 2013, against St. Louis.I think its been a while, so its always nice to see the puck go in, Zetterberg said.Enroth had 20 saves. The Sabres did not pull their goalie at the end of the game while facing a two-goal deficit.NOTE: Howard has been out with a groin injury, and Detroit was also without D Jakub Kindl (elbow), RW Tomas Jurco (back), G Jonas Gustavsson (shoulder) and RW Johan Franzen (head). ... Buffalo was missing D Mike Weber (lower body), C Brian Gionta (head), RW Cody McCormick (blood clot in leg) and LW Marcus Foligno (hand). ... Sabres D Tyson Strachan was helped off the ice after a shot appeared to catch him in the side of the face immediately before Nyquists goal. Strachan later returned to the game. Swell Bottle Wood Collection . Altidore strained his left hamstring in the Americans opener against Ghana on June 16 and didnt play in their next two games. "We dont know how much because we need to see how hes going, but hes available," U. Swell White Marble Bottle . Mike Vecchione tied it at 2 with 4:01 left in the first, Saskatoon native Eli Lichtenwald gave the Dutchman the lead 57 seconds later, and Daniel Ciampini capped the spree with 2:57 to go.VANCOUVER - Joni Ortio had to overcome a lot more than the Vancouver Canucks to record the first shutout of his NHL career.The rookie goalie made 36 saves to help the Calgary Flames blank their Pacific Division rivals 1-0 on Saturday following a 48-hour ordeal that included lost baggage, a cancelled flight and a new pair of contact lenses.Ortio was recalled by the Flames from their AHL affiliate on Wednesday after Karri Ramo went down with an injury, but didnt join the team until Friday afternoon.It wasnt fun, Ill tell you that much, said Ortio. There was a huge snowstorm in Chicago and I kind of got stranded there and cancelled my flight and I went through Toronto and Winnipeg on my way to Calgary.I know shorter routes than that.To make matters worse, the airline lost his luggage — including his contacts — and sticks somewhere in transit.I dont know where, but I got replacement (contact lenses), said Ortio. My gear made it, thank God.The 23-year-old shook all that off to help Calgary (22-18-3) snap a three-game losing streak and pick up its first victory over Vancouver since March 2013.Ortio — who played his first game in the NHL this season and just the 10th of his career — is also the first Flames goalie to shut out the Canucks since Miikka Kiprusoff did it in a 1-0 victory back on Nov. 5, 2005.The pair also just happen to both be from Turku, Finland.When I was growing up, when I was little I looked up to (Kiprusoff) a lot when he was playing back home for my hometown team and then when he came over I kept following him, said Ortio, who backed up Jonas Hiller in Fridays 6-5 loss to the Florida Panthers. Hes been a big influence on my career for sure.It makes it more special. I think it was about time someone shut out the Canucks.Mikael Backlund scored in the first period for a Calgary team that came in 0-6-3 over its last nine against Vancouver.Joni didnt have it easy coming in here, tough couple travel days and didnt get much sleep so it was great to see him have a great performance, said Backlund. Obviously it pumps us up when he makes some big saves and without him we wouldnt have won the game. He was player of the game for sure.Eddie Lack stopped 22 shots for Vancouver (23-14-3), which has dropped two straight after going 5-1-1 over its previous seven outings.Lack — who came in with a 3-0-0 career record against Calgary — and No. 1 goalie Ryan Miller both werent feeling well on Saturday. Neither skated in the morning, but Lack was deemed the healthier of the two and got the nod.Sometimes I feel like you can have your best games when youre not feeling good, said Lack, his voice cracking. If I didnt feel good enough to play I would never play.Trailing 1-0 after giving up a goal early in the first and in possession of a 28-14 shot edge through two periods, the Canucks came out hard in the third, but Ortio was there when he had to be after Vancouver hit three posts in the games first 40 minutes.All I gave them was the iron, he joked. Swell Water Bottle Flowers. No, I got lucky there too but sometimes you just gotta earn your luck.Vancouver continued to press late, but Calgary found a way to hang on late despite playing its second game in as many nights thanks to their rookie netminder.Great performance, said Flames head coach Bob Hartley. I thought he was in control from the first shift, his rebound control was great, great focus, big win.Calgary led 1-0 after a first period mostly dominated by the Canucks and the home side continued on the front foot in the second.Daniel Sedin hit the Canucks second post on a short-handed 2-on-1 rush 1:30 into the period before Jannik Hansen rang another shot off the crossbar a few minutes later.Lack then had to be sharp after a puck in front of the Vancouver goal pinballed to Calgarys Brandon Bollig, who fired a quick shot on target.The Canucks thought they had tied the game with under five minutes to go, but the goal was waved off when Henrik Sedin was judged to have batted the puck in with a high stick.Daniel Sedin then had another chance late in the period, only to have Ortio again foil his effort — this time on a 2-on-1 break with the teams playing 4-on-4.Its frustrating, said Henrik Sedin, whose team was 2-3-0 on its five-game homestand. We know how big every point is. To not get two from this game is disappointing for sure.The Flames didnt have much of the puck in the first period, but grabbed a 1-0 lead at 5:38 on their first shot of the game when Backlund chipped a cross-crease feed from David Jones past Lack for his fourth of the season. Backlund now has three goals and two assists in three games after missing the previous 29 following abdominal surgery.Ortio faced 15 shots in the first period and had to be sharp with about seven minutes to go, stopping Nick Bonino at the side of the net after he took a nice feed from Chris Higgins.Both teams hit posts late in the period, with Flames forward Sean Monahan pinging a shot behind Lack before Bonino did the same against Ortio, who will have quite a story to tell about his first NHL shutout when his careers done.I guess I needed that adversity, he said. Stuff happens and you just have to put it behind you and not let it affect you.Notes: Calgarys last win at Rogers Arena before Saturday was all the way back on Dec. 23, 2011, when the Flames beat the Canucks 3-1. ... Vancouver now heads out on the road for five next five games, beginning Tuesday against the Nashville Predators. ... The Flames played their first of a five-game road trip that continues Thursday when they visit the Arizona Coyotes. ... Canucks defenceman Frank Corrado made his season debut after being called up from the AHL, taking the spot of Yannick Weber. ...
